Whole Language in Israel.
Goodman, Kenneth S.
Talking Points, v12 n2 p14-18 Apr-May 2001
Suggests that whole language is alive and well in Israel, and that like many countries trying to educate multiethnic, multilingual populations, there is a strong interest in whole language as a democratic, innovative pedagogy built on scientific foundations. Notes the Ministry of Education encourages whole language approaches, but the teachers' union and some academics have attacked whole language. (RS)
